Never Eat Alone


Location: Redstone Theater

With Sofia Bohdanowicz in person

Dir. Sofia Bohdanowicz. 2016, 68 mins. In Sofia Bohdanowicz’s short 2016 feature, the filmmaker casts her own paternal grandmother, Joan Benac, as herself. Benac assigns her granddaughter (Deragh Campbell) the task of recovering footage from a kitschy television show on which she appeared in the early 1950s, and by extension the long-lost love interest she appeared alongside. Using pre-existing and newly created images, Bohdanowicz’s microscopically budgeted true independent allows rare cinematic access to the inner thoughts and desires of an elderly woman, speaking to a consistently imaginative and deeply personal growing oeuvre.

This film is presented as part of a double-feature with Maison du Bonheur (which follows at 8:15 p.m.). One admission price for both films.
